The Dirty TRUTH About...Procrastination

What is the one goal or activity you want to fulfill this week, month, or year?

It may seem daunting; you feel it will drain you or, in extreme cases, feels the mere act of starting the task will “suck the life juices” out of you!

If you have felt this way, be encouraged you're NOT alone as I shine the light on the enemy of every project God places on my heart.

What is it?

PROCRASTINATION!

 Today, I’m going to expose its meaning, methodology, modes, and, most of all, how to take MASTERY over it!

a/ the act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention.

b/ to delay doing something until a later time because you do not want to do it, because you are lazy, etc.

Discover The GLORY In Your...STORY!

"I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’
Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth—
 everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” 
Isaiah 43:6-8  (NIV)

The Call is STILL the same today…God is calling His people OUT of the corners to SHINE in His marvelous Light. 

Why? He redeemed you dear One, He calls you by His Name…He formed you ( yes our lumps, bumps and rumps) for HIS GLORY!

I almost failed to miss this LIBERATING truth and walking into the call of God for my life when I allow the circumstance(s) of my past, moments of poor choices, failures on the path of life and inappropriate responses to hold me mentally and emotionally hold me HOSTAGE …hold me BACK from where God plans to take my life.

Some of the landmines I had to walk through (with the help of God) included...

The Secret to Effective Time Management: Hour Blocking

Time is a gift to us from God.

He gives each of us a “time bank” of 24 segments of 60 minutes to allocate on a daily basis.

Time management is an essential skill and there's an easy and powerful way to master this skill. You can use it to block off hours in your schedule and get more things finished. It enables you to take control of your minutes each day.

“So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalms 90:12 NKJV

Follow this process to take advantage of this valuable technique:

 

  1. Start with planning. Make a list of all of your important tasks for the week. Then, narrow this list down to three to five essential tasks.

 

  • Be realistic about your planning. Avoid thinking that you can do a million tasks in one day or week.

 

  1. Block your hours. After you have a shortlist of tasks, block the hours on your schedule. This is called time blocking and essentially requires you to take each hour and assign a task...

Learn How To Dominate The Deception of Distraction!

Am I the only one?

It seems the moment I attempt to sit down to draft a new blog, a course, or outline a book of which I know the content will inspire my sisters...

It seems all of hell launches a full-court campaign to DISTRACT me!

Two quick questions for you to ponder:

  •  What is the definition of “distraction”?

The dictionary states “something that prevents someone from giving their attention to something else”.

  • What is God prompting your heart and calling you to give attention?

As a visionary, inspirational speaker, best selling author I must candidly expose the enemy's trap…once God places that “project” in your heart the distractions as my beloved Grandmother would say “will come out of the woodwork!”

Distractions get in the way every day, keeping you from being as productive as you might like. These distractions come in many forms, from ringing doorbells and telephones to emails,...

GIVE YOURSELF THE GIFT OF…SPRING!

calling time management Mar 07, 2021

 
“Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19 AMP

 Spring symbolizes FRESH growth, NEW opportunities, the START of new beginnings! 

Unfortunately, many women can get STUCK and miss the open door because of this one thing…

 This one thing keeps you frozen…

 This one thing blocks your creative flow…

 This one thing can cause you to circle around your mountain another FUTILE time!

 Today, I encourage you to position yourself for SPRING and…give yourself the Gift of Forgiveness.

When someone has wronged you, forgiveness may be the last thing on your mind. You’re convinced they deserve all the anger and hostility you can muster. However, forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself. Does your anger harm the other person? In most cases, the other person just stays away.

Put Your Pedal To The Medal—WHOOO-HOOO!

It’s still early in the NEW year are you ready and willing to SHIFT Gear from Park or Neutral?

Prior to any new year, I customarily make time to get quiet with God for an annual review of the prior year—what lessons has He taught me? Where has He brought me? What lives have been impacted for His purposes as a result of the prior questions? Then most of all…what NEW dimension of Himself has been revealed to me?

The recap leaves me in tears of JOY and some years bittersweet tears of SORROW knowing I must take my spiritual “redo” test because I did not quite GRASP the character lesson the first time!

As I read my Bible, prayed and journaled, my heart was impressed with an image of a sleek sports car. Honestly, NOT my first choice as a 5’ 10” person who on fancy occasions likes to wear “big hair”—so logically a sports car is NOT this woman’s dream. LOL

Yet, I did appreciate the...

Do You Know The Secret of Your Dark Season?

time management Dec 07, 2020

Aaaah 2020, the year as many spoke in it's coming and first quarter as the year of "perfect vision."

From March until now, is a nail-biting roller coaster for mankind worldwide.

I personally begrudgingly learned to add new activities to my basic living routines---I now carry masks at home and in the car, I sanitize every surface before touching, I shifted from visiting with family and friends face to face to Zoom "catch-ups." I use a "kind eyes" smile with my familiar clerks while shopping.

For me, it is a bittersweet DARK time. Yet, the dark season forces me to think creatively about how to connect further and serve people. As a result, it is a blessing meeting and making new acquaintances worldwide!

During this season, I receive greater comfort, correction, and clarity from God's perspective in the midst of HISTORIC circumstances.

His thoughts are not our thoughts,His ways are higher than our ways. [Isaiah 55:8,9]

Dark seasons SHAKE us; dark seasons CHALLENGE us to become SOBER...

How Can One Stay REFRESHED In The Hectic Holidays?

Studies from the American Psychological Association show the holidays [November to January] are not the happiest time of year for everyone.

I personally after journeying through over 40 holiday seasons as an adult---every year was not a happy time!

Along the holiday trail I've encountered--- work-related pressures, health scares, loss of family members and the flu one year where I couldn't move out of the bed for three days!!!

Those years made me extremely sensitive to the circumstances of others during the holiday season. It makes me ever so grateful for God's Love that sustains us year by year.

"For God so LOVED the world that He GAVE His Only-begotten Son..." John 3:16

If you're feeling worn, depressed,  isolated or alone during ANY holiday season follow God's strategy...G.I.V.E!

Why? It will take your focus OFF of you and your current situation [reminder---situations DO change!] and it will release the rivers of God's love within you! 

Here's a...
